Panel Sessions

“The Transition to DSPs: Inside the DSIP Proceedings”

How do New York utilities view their role in integrating DERs into planning, operations, and administration? How is their participation in pilot programs helping to shape their approaches to widespread deployment of DERs and interactions with stakeholders? In a future retail level platform market design, who should play the role of market facilitator that is filled by NYISO at the wholesale level? How can communications between utilities, DER providers, end-use customers, and other stakeholders be enhanced? This session will address the transition to Distributed System Platform providers (DSPs).

Panelists:

Benjamin Carron, Senior Analyst, Regulatory Strategy and Integrated Analytics, NATIONAL GRID

Miles Farmer, Clean Energy Attorney, NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL

Steven Malena, Program Manager, Distributed System Platform, CONSOLIDATED EDISON

Francis W. Peverly, PMP, Vice President, Operations, ORANGE & ROCKLAND UTILITIES

Moderator: Cristin Lyons, partner and grid transformation practice leader at ScottMadden

“Creating a Roadmap for DER Participation in Retail and Wholesale Markets”

How will new retail markets featuring DERs be coordinated with NYISO’s wholesale electricity markets? How can real-time rates and products be aligned so that strange incentives and market distortions can be avoided? Can the process be accelerated to better match customer demand for behind-the-meter energy management, demand response, and other technologies? This panel will focus on creating a road map for DER participation in retail and wholesale markets.

Panelists:

Michael DeSocio, Senior Manager, Market Design, NEW YORK INDEPENDENT SYSTEM OPERATOR

Natara G. Feller, Esq., Managing Partner, FELLER LAW GROUP, PLLC
